Muggles Hold Record Breaking Harry Potter Auction!

For those seeking greater defense from the dark arts, look no further.

January 2, 2024

From the wizarding world of Harry Potter, our recent Hollywood Icons auction brought a number of rare and unique items from the vaults of collectors around the world. Among those were a number of famous wands from crowd-favorite characters: Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon), Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), Remus Lupin (David Thewlis), Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) which collectively brought in over $315,000.

Fans also enjoyed bidding on over 35 unique, original concept art designs for signage and product labels from Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, allowing bidders to more fully immerse themselves in the fascinating world of Harry Potter.

The ornate and whimsical designs included examples for J Pippins’ Potions, Spintwitches Sporting Needs, Tomes and Scrolls, and the iconic Honeydukes Sweet Shop – fans of which were additionally delighted by sensational and delectable deals on original treat packaging, such as Exploding Bon-Bons, Fizzing Whizzbees, Pumpkin Juice, Wizochoc, Qizilbash Cauldron Cakes, Madam Borboleta Sugared Butterfly Wings, and more.

This auction is not the first time that Julien’s Auctions has swept the competition when it comes to Harry Potter; in December, an original Nimbus 2000 broom brought a staggering $128,000. Earlier in 2022, Julien’s sold a Nimbus 2001 broom for $76,800.
